去年暑假, 我和我妹妹在歐洲旅行了三個月

那是我第二次造訪歐洲

除了盡可能多參觀藝術展出外

我們並沒有其它太多規畫

結果我們造訪了超過20間以上的美術館與大型展覽

包含第12屆德國文件展與第52屆威尼斯雙年展

旅行結束後, 我做出一個簡單結論

當代藝術的世界主要是被少數已成名的藝術家所盤據

而這個世界又以西方為主. 此外

紐約仍毫無疑問是現今當代藝術的中心與主要發源地

這趟行程中我們所付出的門票錢中

有一半是付給美國藝術家或美國策展人策的展覽


我將這個情況視作自己的機會與挑戰

就我所知, 雖然東方的藝術創作被引介到西方世界已經相當多年

但人們大多仍視之為一種異國體驗, 而非另一種思想或觀念上的不同論點

對我而言, 我希望創作出能超越文化與意識形態界線的作品

因此, 我將著重在表達與探討人類間共有的共通經驗上

這點也是我敬佩Bill Viola的原因之一

他的作品成功地在來自不同背景的觀者間創造出認同與共鳴


原文如下

       Last summer, my sister and I spent three months in Europe. It’s the second time I had been there. We

didn't plan much for this journey but had an explicit goal – to visit art as much as possible. In the end,

we went to more than twenty art museums and exhibitions, including the Documenta 12 and the Venice

Biennale 52. After this trip, I had a simple conclusion: a few artists dominate the art world and this world

is still western-centered. Furthermore, New York is still undoubtedly the center and the main birthplace of

contemporary art nowadays. Half of the tickets we paid were for the works and the exhibitions created and

organized by American artists and curators.


      I take this state of play in the art world as my challenge and chance. As far as I know, although

eastern artworks have been introduced to the world for a long time, people usually treat them more as a

kind of foreign experience than as a different viewpoint of thoughts and concepts. For me, I would like

to create something beyond the cultural boundaries and ideologies. Therefore, all the common experiences

shared by human beings will be the content for my artwork to explore and represent. This is one of the

reasons I respect Viola very much because his works successfully create the identification and echo

among the people with different backgrounds.
